We weren’t looking for new cell phones Saturday. It was the last thing on our minds, but when H didn’t find the deal he wanted on that smart TV he had gone in to purchase at Best Buy he wandered over to check out the cell phone counter and I found myself going along for the ride. 

After two hours and forty grueling minutes we walked out with two new upgrades on our cell phones and a new cheaper monthly plan! 

I must admit our service is faster, H no longer has a cracked screen and I can now take selfies – which I don’t.  

On the other hand,  none of H’s apps or pictures transferred over to the new phone. Don’t you hate it when that happens? He was at the point of throwing in the towel and rescuing his old phone, cracked screen and all. 

My pictures transferred twice! I had to re-download all my apps and set my email accounts up again after I deleted half of my picture content. 

Passwords? Now they are all neatly written down in my little black book so next time I won’t have to rack my brain for the info! Now where did I put that little black book….

It’s never an easy transition when upgrading to a new product even if it is the same brand. We have spent countless hours – and I’m sure there will be many more – trying to teach these old dogs new tricks! 

As for that new, smart, bigger-than-we-need TV – it is finally purchased, set up, and ready to go. In a room as small as ours I feel as though I should make popcorn every time the screen jumps to life.
